Excuse me but *toot* *toot* I'm #3!!!

So I had my annual performance evaluation yesterday.

Short background. I was laid off last August with 7 other people due to a budget shortfall and being the low man on the totem pole. I was awarded a special hiring status that meant that if I met the minimum qualifications I get the only interview. I got a new position within the same organization in October 2018 but in a completely different department. I basically took the position created FROM my current coworker away from her. She's a temp. They are working on hiring her (with benefits).

My boss and I sat down in the same meeting room where he was forced to hire me. At my 6 month eval during a "probationary period" (because who knows who you are getting) he lead with "You know we didn't want you here" and then told me I was doing a good job.

Yesterday it went like this's: "What I'm about to say is going to guide the rest of how we go through this. In 40 something years between the Army and here I can only think of two people who were as good at their job or better than you are."

He emailed me the evaluation to edit.

1. Congratulations!

So does this mean you’ll be getting a raise?

3. Funny. I had a aaaaand? Look on my face

No. Probably not. Not until the find out about the other job offer I'm about to get next year. The other department has created a job basically for me. They want me back and it was the best place to work I've ever been at. The rest of the afternoon is going to be updating the resume and writing a cover letter.

2. Ah, okay

 


I know what a #1 and a #2 are, but I had not realized that the "toot toot" was a number 3.

4. I take what I can get.

He was really impressed with how I handled the situation with the co-worker. She bosses HIM around and she's a temp.

See my response above about a new job.

Oh and stop being so anal.
